“I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” – Jane Austen
1. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou: If you want to read a book by Angelou, let it be this one. She writes about her difficult childhood, working with Martin Luther King Jr, the multifaceted relationship with her mother, and her unorthodox friendship with Billy Holiday. Oh, so scandalous! After reading Caged Bird, I guarantee you’ll be addicted forever to Angelou’s voice.

Elizabeth Berg: I’ve termed Berg my hot fudge sundae author, which means her words taste good and cause you to say Ahhhh, Ooooo, Yessss. I’ve read all of her books more than once, including Talk before Sleep, The Day I Ate Whatever I wanted, Pull of the Moon, Open House & Home Safe. She says what women want to say before we say it. ( Pull of the Moon is my favorite )

“All extremes of feeling are allied with madness.” –Virginia Woolf, Orlando
- Chopped: I tape every episode. For me, cooking is like writing. Starting from nothing and creating something beautiful— adding a herb for depth, a spice for substance, a spice for a kick in the ass. I’m obsessed.
~I only believe in fire. Life. Fire. Being myself on fire I set
others on fire. Never death. Fire and life. Les Jeux~Anais Nin
~One afternoon, when I was four years
old, my father came home, and he found me in the living room in front of a
roaring fire, which made him very angry. Because we didn’t have a fireplace.—Victor
The truth is…
